A breezy start to Wednesday, especially over Ulster and Leinster, where some further showers can be expected. But drier here by afternoon, with more in the way of sunny spells. A drier, brighter start elsewhere, with some decent spells of sunshine at times. But a fresh, rather cool day for July, with highs of just 14 to 19 C.
